The Agroponiente group from Almeria, based in El Ejido, has completed the construction of a new logistics and added-value facility that will be used to manage zucchini, eggplant, beans, and cucumbers. The new facilities occupy a total area of 20,000 m², most of which is dedicated to the production of added-value products, and an independent warehouse dedicated to packaging.
“The main beneficiaries of this new facility are our workers, who will now have a more modern space adapted to their needs, and our customers. The specialization of the center, together with the linearity of its configuration and its cold capacity, will allow us to improve our quality and service,” stated the CEO of the Agroponiente Group, Jorge Reig.
Raul Medina, the commercial director of the Agroponiente Group, highlighted "the strategic importance of this new center from a commercial point of view." "These facilities will allow us to achieve excellence in product quality and in our service, always focusing on our customers."
The warehouse is focused on maintaining total linearity in storage, preparation, palletizing, and delivery tasks. This minimizes the time the product spends at the facilities, optimizes its shelf life, and, therefore, its quality.
In addition, the facilities have a high degree of specialization in the production of very manual added-value products and products with very sensitive skin, such as zucchini and eggplant, with machinery that improves the treatment of the product, which will allow the customer to receive a product of extreme quality.
The Industrial director of the company, Juan Jesus Lara, stated: "The new warehouse focuses on the product. The machinery, as well as the location of the cold rooms, were strategically distributed to take care of the product, both before and after its preparation. Our goal is to add the highest value to the product so that we can provide a high-quality product for our most demanding customers."
